    Re: The Feasibility Of A Documentation Contents Wiki.

    Hi all,

    My thanks to Elfy on reopening this thread.

    I have now created a new Wiki which I hope will be approved. It may be found at -
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NewDocs

    I would invite comments or criticisms regarding the Wiki.

    I believe the Wiki could prove to be very helpful for users as it enables faster searches and I believe is user friendly. I eventually hope to follow up with additional help in the support Forums.

    Cheers -

    Edit : This project I see as a "Work in Progress" with eventually many more added pages.

    Many thanks again for that Elfy,

    I would appreciate some advice. It is my idea to ask the community for suggestions on what pages should be included in the Wiki. Should I create a Thread in the Cafe, or would recurring discussions be better ?

    Thank you -
    BlinkinCat -

    Edit - Decided to post in the Cafe for now.

    Hi all,

    Just to confirm that the original Wiki has been much improved in my opinion over the last four days - Of course the Link remains the same at -
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NewDocs

    Cheers -

    Edit : Changes were to the addition of Listings 1 & 2 on the first page and a complete revamp of numbering system from Total page numbering to Alphabetical page listings.
    A reference to adding Tags was also included on the first page.

    Wow. It is so much more improved than it used to be. Thank you to all who helped improve it.

    Thanks for your kind words Sef :

    I must thank both Mörgæs and tgalati4 for their contributions and from both Bashing-om and ibjsb4 for their moral support in expressing approval of NewDocs.

    The thread in the Cafe is rather slowly moving but I guess those viewing the thread may download a link from NewDocs. How else I promote it I am at a bit of a loss to know.

    Cheers and many thanks again Sef -

    Hi all,

    Tidied up the "AlterationsToNewDocs" page - for the better I think.

    Cheers -

    Re: Discussion - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NewDocs

    Hi all,

    I am concerned with the current method proposed for updating NewDoc links.

    I consider that it is rather unwieldy inasmuch as users would find the method of having to post a P.M. to me for alterations, awkward and unfair.

    A far better idea in my opinion would be to have a link within the alterations page for the purpose of "page recommended for addition" and "page recommended for deletion."
    (only one link needed)

    The link could be directed to a Thread on the Recurring Discussions Forum with a name such as "Additions and Deletions to NewDocs links". I still consider that it best to do the actual updates on the first day of the month to allow for the fact that some users may wish to print out accurate alphabetical pages.

    This method of course also allows for the fact that in the future, people other than myself could be involved in the updating.

    I consider this method requires the approval by a moderator before I implement it. I therefore submit the proposal for your approval or otherwise. Of course any alternative suggestion would be welcome.

    Thank you and cheers -

    EDIT : The suggestions made in this post have since been revised.

    Re: Discussion - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NewDocs

    Hi again all,

    I think I have made a bit of a fool of myself in the previous post.

    There already is in my opinion sufficient information on the front page of the Wiki where it refers to obsolete pages that should be subject to the addition of tags.

    All that remains then is for the addition of pages which I suggest could be achieved by the method outlined in the previous post.

    The Thread on Recurring Discussions forum could be "Additional Pages for NewDocs"

    Sorry for the mix-up on my part.

    Cheers -

    EDIT: The suggestions made in this post have since been revised.

    Hi all,

    Sorry for the "triple"post, I trust you don't mind.

    Updated "Alterations " link -
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AlterationsToNewDocs

    Features -

    1. Added PM Link
    2. Suggested adding comments O.K.
    3. Moved line referring to email contact.
    4. Suggested Full Screen Mode best for viewing.
    5. Duplicated front page line with Tags reference.

    Having considered the situation, I would be quite happy taking on the role of updating the additional pages in this manner. After all, it will hardly prove to be difficult work.

    Let me know if the manner of obtaining info meets to your approval.

    With kind regards,
    BC.

    EDIT: The suggestions made in this post have since been revised.
